Simply Three Wins Best Cover of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Sing’


After 13 talented cover artists battled it out for the title of‘s Best Cover of Ed Sheeran‘s “Sing,” Simply Three came out as the contest winner!

The musical trifecta — Glen McDaniel, Zack Clark, and Nicholas Villalobos — won the four-round contest by putting an unconventional twist to the pop song. Rather than singing the lyrics, the trio produced a black-and-white fractal music video of themselves covering the single with the arrangement of a cello, bass, and beatboxing.

Simply Three, who collaborated with Kellindo and Glen McDaniel from Janelle Monae‘s band for a mashup ofCold War” and “Tightrope,” has also incorporated their classic style on other pop-friendly tracks including Pharrell‘s “Happy,” Imagine Dragons‘ “Demons,” and Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep.”

Their debut EP Two Worlds Collide is available for download on iTunes now.
